Calories 348 kcal


  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 large head cauliflower chopped
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds raw, shelled
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped, fresh
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes crushed
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice fresh
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Clean and trim your cauliflower and chop into florets.

  3. In a medium-sized bowl mix cauliflower, olive oil, salt and pepper.

  4. Pour onto baking sheet evenly.

  5. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Then rotate and flip the sprouts and bake for another 10-15 minutes. *Rotating and flipping helps them brown evenly so they're crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

  6. Take out the pan and put the cauliflower into a medium-sized bowl.

  7. In your cauliflower bowl, add the chopped parsley, olive oil, pumpkin seeds, and additional salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, and lemon juice. Mix it all together.

  8. Check for seasoning and serve!
